are in the state of texas and had nothing to do with abramoff. the justice department totally dropped it. should tom delay have been indicted by the federal government? >> guest: i can answer that because i'm not alberto gonzÁlez and i'm not jack abramoff but i will tell you this if i was indicted for going -- if i pled because i won a trip to scotland. tom went to mariano islands and jack and i didn't. the question is that an illegal trip? jack paid for tom's doctors bridal shower or baby shower. the former chief of staff received a filter billion dollars a jack abramoff into some type of foundation or some such thing. now are those indictable? i don't know. i'm not alberto gonzalez but my point is that if a jury in texas in the state in fact convicted tom delay what happened here with the justice department, these are peanut things is as jack abramoff comes to a conclusion. they can indict the end we were all indictable or we all were. were. c-span: appreciative picture be standing on saint andrews golf course i believe it is with the group and look at this picture. first of all yo
